  The Bun
by wise23girl

If you are staying in Bell (a town with a very short name) you can drive to Kaimkillenbun which is recognized as the Queensland town with the longest single name, but is affectionately known by locals as "The Bun
Kaimkillenbun is located 24 km from Dalby, on the way to the Bunya Mountains. The surrounding area had a population of approx 300.

Kaimkillenbun was the setting for the Nicole Kidman movie" Chase Through the Night" and it was also the birthplace of Olympic basketballer John Dorge.

What I cannot recall is whether there was an old Railway Station so if you go please let me know.
